My colleague and I got insanely sick from lunch at this resort. Both of us had exactly the same symptoms an hour apart from each other. When we asked the hotel to reimburse us back the $ for food and drinks for TODAY, since we cant eat or drink anything other than water, they refused to. We didn't even ask...

We were there last week. Clean room, fresh food, friendly people but most of all the beach. Beautiful ocean with a direct access which is not the case of the hotel we stayed in last year. If the purpose of the trip is the beach, i definitely recommend Gold Zanzibar.

The idea for this trip was to find something budget friendly for a family of four. My Budget with flights included was 2500 USD. Keep in mind we were flying from Abu Dhabi. I stumbled...

Although we were staying at another hotel we decided to try the restaurant at the Gold Zanzibar Beach House & Spa and were we glad we did! The restaurant on the beach is spectacular. Although the sun had set the evening was magical. My husband ordered the seafood pasta dish and commented that it had been "the best pasta dish...

I am a resident of Dar Es Salaam and have been staying at Gold Zanzibar since opening and still stand by it. Their quality of construction, location, service, food, etc. has never waned nor deteriorated like many other properties on Znz island. Andrea, Anna, Francesca, Umberto and the entire Gold team deserves an award. Congrats and keep it up!
